Apple Cranberry Salsa

This is amazing!!!!!
First time I saw it I thought no way will I try it... then I did and fell in love!
Then saw the recipe.. several of the ingredients I don't even like... but the combination is terrific!
I made it for cooking group at my house... several didn't want to try it.. but once they did they loved it!

4 gala apples chopped

1 bunch of green onions chopped

1 can whole cranberries sauce

2 fresh jalapenos cleaned out and chopped   (I only used one - wanted it mild - and I chopped real fine)
1 cup cilantro chopped

Sprinkle with balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper to taste

Cheesy Bread Recipe


8 oz shredded Mozzarella cheese

1 lb shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1/2 to 1 cup chopped green onion (to taste)

1/2 cup mayonnaise

2 Tbsp sour cream (optional)

3-4 cloves garlic, minced

1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup, 4 ounces), softened to the point of being slightly melted

1 to 2 loaves of French or Italian bread depending on the size of the loaves


1 In a large bowl, mix together the cheeses and the green onion. Stir in the mayonnaise and sour cream. In a separate small bowl blend the butter and garlic until smooth. Add the butter mixture to the cheese mixture.

2 Preheat broiler. Slice loaf of bread in half horizontally, lay crust side down. Spread cheese mixture over the bread. Place under the broiler until nicely browned, about 3 to 5 minutes.

3 Remove from broiler and let sit for 5 minutes until cool enough to handle. Slice the bread with a bread knife. Serve.

Makes 30 to 40 slices.
